Raise your hand if you love a good pickle. Last year I got to the Rosendale Pickle Festival around 2:30 pm, and the Community Center in Rosendale was packed with pickle lovers. It took me a while to find the actual pickles, but once I did I was in a for many tasty free samples. I ended up buying a jar of bread and butter pickles from the Stretch Pickle vendor. Delicious! I felt a bit claustrophobic at times with the crowds, but over all it was a fun time. This year I will try to be an early bird and beat the crowds. The 16th Annual Rosendale International Pickle Festival will be held on November 24th from 10am-5pm at the Community Center in Rosendale.
